Electronic Bills

St. John's University will E-Bill (electronically bill) you upon registration for semester courses beginning in June for the fall semester and November for the spring semester. All students and authorized users (parents or other individual(s) invited by the student to view and pay the student’s bill), will receive an email notifying them a bill for tuition, fees, and housing is now available for viewing and paying.

E-Bills will be forwarded to the student’s St. John’s email address as well as the authorized user(s) designated email address.

The E-Bill will show all of the student’s charges and credits for the upcoming semester as well as any previous balances. Credits will be listed on the account statement of both actual and anticipated financial aid. Anticipated financial aid is considered financial aid that has not yet been disbursed to the account due to pending verification. Any anticipated financial aid that is cancelled due to ineligibility, the student is  responsible for payment of the full balance due.

E-Bills will be generated each semester (summer, fall, spring, and intercession). These bills are payable by the due date listed on the bill.

All fees and the entire tuition for each semester are due and payable in full by payment and/or financial aid before registration can be completed. Payment Plan options are available and must be completed by he due date of each semester. The University reserves the right to change the schedule of tuition and fees when necessary, but every effort is made to maintain them at the lowest possible level.

Students holding full tuition scholarships are required to pay the General Fee and any other fees required for the courses they are taking.

Registration is not complete until payment is made or enrollment confirmed with a financial aid credit , and the University reserves the right to drop a student from an individual class or from his or her entire program if payment is not made by the due date or enrollment not confirmed with a financial aid credit.

With the exception of first–semester freshmen and certain students in “block” programs of study, students at St. John’s select their own classes via the St. John’s University Information System (UIS). This process of selecting classes is commonly called “registration,” but it is only part of the total registration process.

Registering for a class as approved by your Advisor does more than just reserve a seat for you in that class. It also generates a financial liability for that class and takes away a seat from another student. Because of this, St. John’s considers your registration as a clear indication of your intention to attend that class

Students by registering at the university personally guarantee and are responsible for all obligations to for tuition, fees and other charges. Students under the age of majority, under 18 in New York State, have by assumption received the personal guarantee of their parent(s) or guardian unless the student, the parent(s), or guardian notifies the University in writing of their invalidation of the personal and parental assumption of guarantee of all tuition, fees and other charges.

Students whose accounts are in arrears will not be permitted to register for a subsequent semester, issued a diploma or a transcript of record. All past due balances are charged interest at the rate of one percent per month. Delinquent accounts may be referred to a third party for collection which will result in the addition of collection costs to the account balance and possible credit bureau reporting.
